Congratulations to Missouri Residents!
MISSOURI RESIDENTS, you have won!
This year's state Senate session ended without a final vote on HJR 48.
I'll let Missourians for Fair Elections tell the story, but here's a quote:
In a victory for all voters, Missouri lawmakers ended this year’s legislative session without a final vote on legislation that could have prevented up to 240,000 Missourians from voting. The proposed change would have altered Missouri’s constitution, allowing for strict citizenship and government-issued photo ID requirements that would make Missouri one of the toughest states in the country for eligible, law-abiding citizens to register to vote or cast a ballot.
Again, congratulations to all of Missouri, and thanks to all Missouri residents who contacted their state senators and helped defeat this anti-democracy amendment.
